    Ten 60gb Video Ipods for $2500... scam?!

    This has been on Craigslist for many different cities, so I believe it could be a scam. The deal is Ten 60gb Video Ipods for only $2500, (retail is $4000 + tax)

    I responded to the ad and here is the email I got. It's suspicious because anyone could have made that website, I have no buyer protection, nothing's legit IMO. And they say they're an authorized apple dealer. Somebody check it out, here's the e-mail:

    How are they asking you to pay? It offers credit card logos, but are they asking you to pay by methods not advertised on the site, such as Western Union?

    I think I have seen this before somewhere and it was a scam. Be very cautious. For the life of me I can't remember where I saw it. I thought it was a thread here, maybe try googling it.

    I bet they are going to tell you their credit machine is down and they can only take a Western Union payment.. Most likely a scam

    Can't they get sued for using the Apple name? Maybe I'll take a drive down there. Funny how you need to email them to get the phone #.

    I'm gonna ask if I can pick it up.

    There's a popup after you "checkout" that has a URL for

    http://www.applecomputers.us/

    Domain doesn't have anything on it

    http://www.apple-computers.net/new.html

    I emailed them, it bounced. Then I did a quick google:

    If they are trying to use Apple Computers as their name, it is obviously to fool people, and obviously a scam.
